ah, I wish I understood css transforms better!  But yes, I can see
that they are being defined in home.css and attached to individual
classes/ids for slides.  That's very helpful.

I'll give that a try, if I end up having time (argh).  I'm actually
liking deck, though.  Am wondering if it would be very hard to add

Thanks again, very very helpful.
